Rihanna Sends Pizza And Towels To Fans Waiting In The Rain, As If You Needed More Reason To Worship Her
Rihanna is a badass, but she’s also nice as hell apparently. It started to rain before her show at the V festival at Manchester, England’s outdoor Emirates Old Trafford stadium Wednesday, and to make it all better, Rihanna sent 20 pizzas and towels to fans who had to wait in the rain. That is probably one of the coolest fucking things I’ve heard since, well, ever. Because while getting dirty and waiting go hand in hand with music festivals, a little pizza and a towel to dry off is exactly what one needs when probably semi-buzzed in the middle of a field. Otherwise, it’s a total buzzkill. No one suffers under Rihanna’s watch.
The singer sent 20 pizzas — cheese, pepperoni, and Hawaiian (we’ll have to let that choice slide, but, hey, British people can be weird) — and fans immediately took to social media to show off their slices. They were a little soggy, but it’s the thought that fucking counts. Then, Rihanna did everyone a real solid by bringing Drake onstage for a performance of “Work.” All that goodwill is what I think is scientifically known as “totally fucking worth it.” According to the Manchester Evening News, she even signed a few pizza boxes, which was totally unnecessary, but super fucking cool.
One fan told the newspaper, “We couldn’t believe it. The pizza was only sent to our side of the queue.” I mean, you can’t buy everyone pizza, but you can spread a little goodwill and good vibes.
I have a slightly embarrassing secret — Rihanna intimidates the shit out of me. Because I want to be more like Rihanna. She rolls blunts on her bodyguard’s bald head and is probably a whole lot better than I am at it. She spends a lot of time just not giving a fuck. When someone owes me money, I text politely one time and then resent them silently, seething until they pay me back. Rihanna kidnaps them and takes them swimming before tying their asses up. I’m not scared of her, per se, it’s just that I feel like no matter how awesome I think I am, Rihanna is just cooler.
But being a badass, asking for what you want, and not making any apologies doesn’t make you an asshole though. While in Austin, her and her crew drank $80 worth of Jameson and Coke and she left a $200 tip on the tab. As a former waitress, that makes me want to make out with her.
Pizzas, towels, and big tips are really thoughtful gestures. Rihanna’s just a fucking softy deep down.
